In their website, Newtype announced the release of Macross Ace, a comprehensive info-guide of the macross franchise from the first Macross to its latest Macross Frontier — still part of Macross’ 25th anniversary I suppose. This issue also promises details of the upcoming Macross F movie — and probably will end the macross-movie-is-Klan-centered speculations by fans.

Macross A (Ace) Vol.001

Release Date: Monday, January 26, 2009
